Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
 
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.




 

Every Now and Then

Written by Kevin Parent

Piano: Bob Malone


I’ve seen the world outside
Like wolves at the door
The raging sea rising higher than before
But this stillness I have inside is presently mine

Yes every now and then I feel the weight is lifting off of me
Yes every now and then it seems that we can still be free

At peace with myself like seldom before
I won’t feel guilty for not fighting this war
See those people cry, will come our turn
The planet’s in grief
We’ve got so much to learn
There’s more to the screen than meets the eye
People like you and me are allowed to know why

So every now and then I do get affected by what’s going on
Yes I hear the roaring anger, don’t get me wrong
Yes every now and then I want to reach out
and take the world in my hands
Cause every now and then believe it or not
I think I understand

I believe love is a must, domination is a lack of lust
And how many times do you breathe in deep?
How many smiles do you honestly mean?
Is there a silent something that deprives you from sleep?
Why not count instead of killing those imaginary sheep?
I pray for your relief

Every now then I feel the weight is lifting off of me
And every now and then it seems we can still be free
And every now and then I need to see that
look in my loved ones’ eyes
Cause every now and then I wake up
But the dream, it never dies

VERSE
A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
Gravity like a lunar landing
Make me want to run until I find you
I shut the world away from here
Drift to you, you’re all I hear
Everything we know fades to black

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
 
CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same
 
VERSE
Find the place where we escape
Take you with me for a space
The city buzz, it sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I had to find just where you are
The faces seems to blur, they’re all the same

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same
 
BRIDGE
So much more to say
So much to be done
Don’t you trick me out
We shall overcome
And our love stays ablaze

We should have had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we’re over here

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time, too long defending
You and I are done pretending

CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change
Oh I, I wish that this could last forever
I, oh I, I wish that this could last forever
Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh
So drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes that we have made
But love remains the same
